once upon a time

LIVING AND HOPING

LIVING AND HOPING

We look at life everyday
Unaware we let it slip away:-

Life is like a carousel turning,
And dipping all around we lost the
Knack of playing at life finding it mundane

Until one day we stopped aghast:-
Realising life had slipped from our grasp

As a thief in the night we stole, and stripped
Our hearts of beauties light finding pain
Instead of gain

Simple gain, the stars at night, dawns golden
Sunlight diffusing city lights we stopped looking
At life's beauties

Now trying to salvage ourselves and let
Loves beauty shine in our life
Even raindrops shimmering on a blacktop
Highways are a wonderous sight

White lines disappearing into a far distant horizon
Allows us to lift our eyes and gaze at Gods magnificent
Creation living after all is like a carousel

And we should ride it onwards as if once again
We are children playing at life finding the
Pleasure we lost whilst working at living
